Re: Recording keeps returning to the start

May win the 1st place for oddest thing seen (there is no prize.)

Possible keybinding/remote problem? Does it return exactly to the start of
the recording, or the same number of minutes? Does it happen after some
other keypress? Use a different remote/keyboard? Consider blocking any IR
receiver(s.)

Re: Newer system, accessing old system content..

Hi, Yes, multiple backends can be running at the same time. Obviously with different IPs if on the same network and with their own DB. I've got three right now. I've never run a backend without a Private Network address, but have read comments from others that do it. Start with PC1 and look at the b...

Re: My setup broke, not sure what happened

Eliminate MythTV from the picture by trying to access the DB from the command line: mysql --host=localhost --user=mythtv --password=yourPasswordFromConfig.xml mythconverg Replace the password with the one found in config.xml. The rest are likely the same as in that file. If that doesn't work, then t...

Re: 0.29 on Centos 6

Yes, v30 is correct. Currently, and more specifically, the git tag is: v30.0
and the branch is: fixes/30

Re: 0.29 on Centos 6

The project has buildbots that compile master and v30 and Centos 7.
None for v29.

Note that v30 was released on 2019-01-14. Maybe some other Centos
user will chime in re Centos 6.

Hi, NULL hostnames in the DB are known to be Global, e.g. not specific to any host.

Re: Commercial Detection fails wit exit 140 on 1080i recordings

Hi, mythbackend --serverbose system will give you a bit more information. I'm guessing that the error code you're seeing is in the mythbackend.log (as opposed to mythcommflag.log.) The 140 is defined (in the MythTV project) as: GENERIC_EXIT_KILLED 140 ///< Process killed or stopped The full command ...

Re: My setup broke, not sure what happened

Reinstalling MAY help, but it's no guarantee that the root cause of the failure will
go away. I don't do it for anything MythTV (or much else for that matter.)

Re: MythTV Backend Setup has closed unexpectedly

No indication of the assert failure mentioned in the 1st post here (or any other signal.)
They's appear at the end of a failed mythAnything program's log. Like this:

Re: My setup broke, not sure what happened

Your backend is not running. I'd expect to see a line containing this: "Failed to init MythContext" in your backend log (usually in /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log.) Before that message, I'd expect to see a reason for the failure. Please put a full log at pastebin.com and put a link to that here if ...

Re: MythTV Backend Setup has closed unexpectedly

Need some more info. The error message doesn't exist in the current MythTV code base. Where does it show up (journal/syslog/mythbackend.log etc.) It could be that its from a *buntu product. A link to the "Error report" may help as the above refers to a mythcommflag assert and nothing to do with myth...
